Litzy,
What Dan said is perfect.
You have to be organized and be able to multitask.
It is a lot of putting out little fires (problems) that come up.
You could be on the phone with another person in front of you while looking at blueprints or you could be walking the site and checking on the subcontractors to make sure they are doing things correctly and safely and asking if they have any questions. While it is hands on somewhat, it is a lot of office work to keep every trade happy and running like a fine watch.
I hope this helps.

Bob
